Tap at Northbound. Dark pour with a big fluffy head. Lots of ripe raspberry comes out in the aroma and flavor - enjoyable, but having it side by side with Northbound’s Snownami (also a raspberry beer), it doesn’t quite match up. Granted, Snownami has a bunch of chocolate going on as well, but the raspberry also seems to be integrated better.

On tap at Northbound brewpub, pours a dark brown/black with a medium tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla, and raspberry syrup. Taste is upfront roasted malts and chocolate, rather dry with an underlying raspberry sweetness, a really nice balance. A simple infusion but very enjoyable!

deyholla (6613) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - DEC 10, 2010
Tasted at brewery. Poured a dark brown with a grayish brown head that dissipated slowly to the edges. Aroma had dark grains and roasted malts that was joined by an underlying, but strong, note of raspberries. Flavor began with dark grains and roasted malts, that were soon joined by a raspberry note. The finish was, unfortunately, a bit thin for me. Left something to be desired.

LCBS 2010. Bad ass brew. This one is simple to describe: rasberry filled chocolate bars with a little roasted malt. Really a well done beer. The fruit is integrated very well. A nice surprise.

xmarcnolanx (929) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - OCT 8, 2010
Aroma is sweet chocolate malts, raspberries, vanilla, coffee. Taste is crazy-ass raspberry chocolate, vanilla, cocoa, sweet, and some cracker/porter shit. Finish is sweet, slightly dry, and sweet raspberry. Good.

arminjewell (6158) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - MAY 26, 2010
Pours black with slight red hue, tan head. Aroma is chocolate and raspberries with a touch of roast. Taste is a nice blend of sweet raspberries and bittersweet chocolate, ending sweet. Nice version here!

DalzAle (1977) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Growler pour. Dark black pour, almost looked like a coke (minus some carbonation). Flavor is rich roasted malts, roasted backbone and effervescent mouthfeel that finished with a very subdued hint of raspberry. Nice brew, I really appreciate a good fruit beer that doesn’t go over the top with sweetness.

On tap at Winterfest (St. Paul, MN). I’m not normally a fan of raspberries. However, this is a solid beer. These infused porters are really well balanced, and the raspberry here just melds in really well with the porter flavors. I’m definitely a fan of Flat Earth infused cygnus, and of the naming with the Rush themes as well. WIsh I got to try the orange infused Xanadu.

Wow, lots of raspberries in this. Dark reddish hue to it, smells of more razzies. Some of the normal roasty, coffee, flavors come threw, but the fruit dominates most everything. Got to be a bit much after the first pint. Not my fav of their cygnus offerings.
